Last weekend was our annual 2-day “VicFest Fall Scramble”, sponsored by Sleeman Brewery. Saturday was more like a winter day: windy, cold, rain, then snow, then rain again. After an hour delay, though, the call was made to forge ahead and get the game going. Most of the players agreed that it was THE WORST conditions that they’ve ever played in. Surprisingly enough, low score for the day was in the double-digits at 10 under.
Sunday proved to be a little better, weather-wise. It was cold, but no precipitation.
This event has been going on since the early 80s – maybe even the late 70s! As far as fall scrambles go, it’s a popular one. This year was just one team shy of a full field (140 players). They played Victoria Park Valley on the Saturday, and the East course on Sunday. Winning score over 36 holes was 20 under.
